The Ladies of Horror

by Bailey Hunter

 “I’m really sorry Sam.” Kali threw a pebble into the misty waters.
“You’re such a bitch, Kali.  You said we’d go together.”
“Look, I said I’m sorry.  How was I supposed to know you’d leave without me? What kind of boyfriend does that?” Kali tried to match Sam’s angry tone, but it came out weak, sounding more sad than anything.
“You’re right. I could have waited.” Sam’s voice softened. “I should have waited.”
“I’m here now though.  I’m really glad you came back for me. I was worried I would never see you again.” Kali removed her bright red windbreaker and dropped it to the shoreline.
“I could never really leave you behind. We made a promise. But you better hurry. Tide’s rolling out and you don’t want to miss it this time.”
“I’m coming!” Kali undressed quickly. The cold Atlantic air bit at her pale flesh as the salt water spray washed it away in thick, gelatinous globs. She sank slowly to the ground feeling her formless body filling all the spaces between each grain of sand.
Ah to be free from that shell. Kali had almost forgotten how wonderful of a sensation it was. She slipped over the shiny black rocks, worn smooth by time and water, into the deep black sea where Sam was waiting for her.
Mating season had finally begun.
